Spider-Man

by Brett White

Of all the upcoming superhero movies, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" has been the not-telling-you-who-this-actor-is-playing-est of them all. Right now, Sarah Gadon, Felicity Jones and Colm Feore are all playing mystery roles. We're also not sure how Goblin-y Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan will get, and we haven't heard anything else regarding B.J. Novak's quick appearance on-set.

As frustrating as that may be for fans and bloggers alike, director Marc Webb recently revealed to Total Film that that's all part of his masterplan.

"Anything you expect [about who these actors are playing], you'll be surprised," he said. "To be totally honest, I intentionally conceal these things because I want people to be engaged and surprised when they see the film and experience it for the first time. It's not like 'Harry Potter' or 'Twilight' necessarily where you know the stories."

While speaking to Crave Online during last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con International, "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise director Marc Webb revealed some basic—but exciting—information about the other two upcoming installments in the franchise.

"Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen," said Webb. "I think [for] the fourth movie, what we've discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie."

Does this mean that some of Spider-Man's friends could pop up when "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" swings into theaters on May 4th, 2018? It looks like it!

Spider-Man

With so much attention being placed on the changing "Amazing Spider-Man 2" cast, we've forgotten to check on director Marc Webb's Twitter feed for awesome set photos. Thankfully we checked in today, because it looks like the film has wrapped production!

While the pics don't shed any new light on Felicity Jones' mystery character, or show off the newly added Sarah Gadon, or even clarify what's going to happen to Shailene Woodley now that she's been cut from the film, the TwitPics (and TwitVideo!) capture the last few days of shooting in truly epic fashion. Seriously, the video of Andrew Garfield perched high atop Manhattan has to be seen to be believed. That's... that's a long way down, man...

We're gonna miss all these guys! Check out all of the tweets after the jump.
